Our Reviews About This Tour

Amazing horse back riding and Cotopaxi hike to base camp!


We had an amazing tour with Pedro and Carolina! There was great communication as soon as we booked the trip. The vehicle was very comfortable and clean. Pedro arrived promptly for our tour. We started with a nice drive to Cotopaxi National Park. Pedro shared a lot of information about the history of the area which was great to learn. We started with a two and a half hour horse ride. It was both our first time riding a horse and the team was patient with clear direction. We really had a fun time Doing this. Pedro was very accommodating and let us do slightly shorter ride so that I could have an opportunity to climb to base camp of Cotopaxi! It was completely exhilarating and one of the highlights of my trip to Ecuador. After we visited a lagoon to bird watch and then had a very nice meal. Pedro also arranged to drop us off at a safe bus stop so we could travel to Ambato after the tour since we were half way there. He did offer a transfer himself but we felt safe to take the bus. Thanks for an amazing tour! Everyone needs to try! 10/10.

My girlfriend and I booked this tour on our trip to Ecuador and we were simply amazed. From the scenic drive to the volcano, to the unforgettable horseback riding experience through the park, to the amazing hike up Cotopaxi, everything was perfect! Our guide, Pedro, was very friendly and had many interesting facts about Cotopaxi and Ecuador. Shout out to Jimmy, the professional driver who drove us safely all the way through the from our hotel, all the way to and through the park and partway up the volcano!

Perfect !

we went with Pedro, and first, we stopped and he bought us water and snacks. Then we went for a tiny walk in the Cotopaxi national park and finally did the 3 hours horse tour. Then we went to eat and it was all included. Then we were brought back to our hotel. Absolutely worth it, 10/10, Pedro was amazing and the view was spectacular. Horses were super well behavied. The whole experience was amazing

A great way to experience Cotopaxi

I would 100% recommend this trip – it was one of the best tours that I have taken. The landscape was phenomenal but it was really Pedro that made the tour. He was pleasant to be around, knowledgeable, and made sure that I was comfortable throughout the ride. A couple of suggestions: bring warm clothes. It can be chilly, windy and rainy. Also make sure to use plenty of sunscreen. Lastly, eat a big breakfast or bring some snacks. We didn’t make it to lunch until nearly 3:30pm. All in all – I highly recommend!

Great day with the horses!

We had a great day at Cotopaxi with Pedro as our guide. He rode along with us as well as the local horse guide. He was kind enough to translate for us and take photos. It was cloudy so we did not do the base camp ascent but walked around the lake and had a lovely lunch. 100% recommend!
